BBC One’s critically acclaimed epic Sunday night drama series starring Maxine Peake and John Simm will return with six more episodes next year. Peter Moffat’s story charts the life and turbulent times of one English village across the whole of the 20th century.
Peter Moffat, creator and writer of The Village says: “I’m thrilled at the prospect of bringing to the screen the plans I’ve got for all these characters (and some new ones) as the life of the village moves away from the horror of war and into the roaring Twenties. Boom and bust, the Charleston and the Black Bottom, motor cars, extreme politics, fish and chips, jazz, bananas, cinema, the decline of the aristocracy and the rise of the middle classes – the outside world comes to the village, bringing with it the big drama that change always generates. I’m very grateful for the support the BBC have given this project right from the start. No other broadcaster I can think of would have the confidence to do it.”
